Context

Since its foundation in 1984, Prosoft group, headquartered in Regensburg and with sales/marketing in Essen, has developed into a leading software provider for temporary employment. In 2017, the company expanded its product portfolio with the introduction of the recruiting software Prosoftrecruiting©.

In 2019, Prosoft’s two shareholders Axel Wegmann and Denny Hölscher commissioned Bryan, Garnier & Co to find a suitable partner to support the company’s long-term growth. The choice of Prosoft’s largest competitor Landwehr was an opportunity to create Germany’s leading provider of SaaS temporary employment software for medium-sized companies, and to secure a long-term future for Prosoft’s IT location in Regensburg.

The unique combination of software investor Lea Partners and Landwehr offers many advantages for customers, a high level of stability and significant growth potential.
